I did a little experiment I want to share with you. 5 weeks ago, the last time we got radishes in our CSA share, I wanted to see how long they would stay crisp and fresh stored in my refrigerator. Every week I would check on them and see if they were still crisp. These are 5 week old radishes. Beautiful right?
I cut off the leaves and put them in a plastic bag and put them in the vegetable drawer in my refrigerator. I do the same with carrots, turnips and grilling onions. (Here is a post I did on storing/cured onions).
All of these will keep at least 2 or 3 weeks. These carrots are 3 weeks old and just as good as the day I got them.
So, know, you don’t have to eat your whole CSA share every week. It’s nice to sandbag some vegetables if you need larger quantities than you get in one weeks share.
It’s also nice to know some of the vegetables will wait patiently in the refrigerator until they are needed.
Have a great week, see you at pickup.
